1. Some day when all of life’s sadness is over,
And we shall stand on that beautiful shore;
When all our heartaches are ended forever,
Dwelling with Christ evermore.

We’ll tell the wonderful story,
There with the King in His glory;
Jesus a mansion will give us,
In that bright home over there;
Angels we’ll tell of salvation,
Wonderful gift to the nations;
We’ll be the blest of creation,
Reigning with Christ over there.

2. Oh, praise the Lord for the gift of the Savior!
Favor divine to the children of men;
But all the joys of our life here with Jesus
Burst into ecstasies then. [Refrain]

3. Free from all sorrow, all care and all sighing,
Free from the pain that we can’t understand;
In that bright city there’s nothing but gladness,
Oh, let me fly to that land! [Refrain]

4. Some day the king will return in His beauty;
Some day our loved ones will greet us again;
Some day we’ll join in the songs of the angels,
That will be glorious then. [Refrain]
